Amy Mattox ’17 sends this message through the digital airwaves:
The theme of this year’s 48 hour magazine is FORTUNE. We’re thinking blind luck, superstition, the stock market, gambling, risks, classism, fortune cookies, horoscopes, chris brown, chance, O Fortuna, tarot, the oracle at delphi, lucky charms, coincidence, misfortune, etc.
From now until MIDNIGHT, please send any responses to FORTUNE to firstname.lastname@example.org
with your full name and class year.
We want to see your .poems, drawings, paintings, collages, personal essays, photo essays, found object, wild assemblages, deconstructive critiques, sculptures, science experiments, fiction, album reviews, comix, knock knock jokes, haiku, soundbites, genre-defiant mud, exposé reporting, video art, interviews, animation, songs, podcast materials, etc – make it fast, make it quick, make it in 12 hours or four minutes.
We’ll be tabling in Usdan from noon till 8, asking the serious and incisive questions about FORTUNE you’ve all been waiting for.
Some final words of wisdom:
Fortune is a horse with four white feet
& more importantly:: The cleanly are comfortable, the dirty are lucky.
god speed + good luck

Submit your work to Headspace, a student run publication! Headspace examines all topics related to the mind, the brain, and behavior. This year we are looking for submissions related to the topic, “What is the mind to you?” We seek submissions of a variety of formats including prose, poetry, science writing, visual art, or anything in two dimensions. Some ideas to get you started: How does your field interpret the mind?, How does the mind work?, How does the mind communicate (e.g. through emotion, behavior, etc)?, What is the purpose of the mind? Students and faculty are welcome to submit work from any academic discipline.
Email your submissions with your name and class year (if applicable) to wes.headspace[at]gmail[dot]com by Friday, February 27th at 11:59 PM. Anonymous submissions are welcome.

Miriam Olenick ’13 writes in about the campus publication most likely to elicit amusing reactions from your parents this weekend (yes, that’s the cover pictured above):
Unlocked, Wesleyan’s art and sexuality magazine, is HAWT off the press and ready for purchase. Copies are $5 a piece, but if you can show me where your work/sexy modeling is you get a free copy!
Sam Maldonado ’13, Stefan Skripak ’13, and I will be selling copies from our respective homes until we get kicked out of this place on Monday. If you’re not here for senior week, Unlocked will be selling again at the beginning of next semester. We’re sorry for the delayed gratification — we had a bit of a struggle with our printers.
For now, contact me at (917) 371 8501, Sam at (413) 328 5406, or Stefan at (215) 527-9002 and we’ll figure out a time/place to get you a copy.
Contact: Sam Maldonado ’13, Stefan Skripak ’13, or Miriam Olenick ’13
Cost: $5 an issue

Waves just dropped its first ever issue, and Jay Sharma ’16 writes in with details:
This week marks the release of Waves Magazine‘s first issue! This issue is dedicated to Wesleyan Alumni who are making waves in the world of music. The literature included ranges from alumni interviews, concert reviews, album reviews, editorial pieces, history lessons, opinion pieces, and more. We wanted to reach a wide audience; therefore, we decided to make the first issue a digital version. The entire Waves Magazine team has put in a tremendous amount of time and work. The second issue will be dedicated to Wesleyan Seniors and will be released before the end of the semester. Until then, check out the first issue here, and keep checking the blog to stay up to date on music on and off campus.
